I'm just throwing this out there as a hypothetical, would anybody want to see a thundercats movie?

Would it suck like my nightmares keep telling me transformers will?

I would watch it regardless. Both of them are icons from my childhood and I would watch them and enjoy it, even if they sucked. I just wouldn't watch them more than once if they sucked.

I had the Panthro figure. Actually I still have his nun-chucks. I recently found a Mumm-ru but without his headdress. He looks funny. Those were the only ones I got for some reason.

A live version of Cheetarah...?

Panthro would dominate harder then the hulk, and Tygra is cooler then a sack full of Qui-Gon Jinn's. And lets ot even go into the dark, what was it Kevin Smith wrote in Clerks 2? 'interspecies relations'? Of Cheetara?!!?. It's a weird scenario to be in as a kid fancying a cartoon character, but you don't even know what fancyting is you'd just say their "aesthetically pleasing"

but you don't know what those words are. Women shouldn't be hot in cartoons, Jessica Rabbit, that warped my sense of females well into my teenage years.

Would you want to see it updated somewhat given a verisimilitude? like Batman Begins or maintain the "for kids" motif? i guess would you want it changed... developed to satisfy your now adult needs as a film viewer? i don't think i could watch Snarf for 90minutes-2hours?

I think they would gear up the movies to appeal to older crowds, so I would go for it. It would be nice to watch it and not feel childish, but not lose it's roots either. I would love it.

I bought the first volume of season 1 on dvd. Those suckers are expensive. I've yet to watch it. Think I'm kinda afraid it won't be as good as it was back then. Plus there's the time issue I seem to have.

Thundercats kicked @$$ n i would say that Cheetara would either be Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, or Jessica Simpson.......Cheetara was hot and so should be the woman who plays her

"The Rock as liono"

dont do that to thudercats, he would not make a goood lion-o, he can barely act.... and fight scecnes of horror wresting moves...ack...get a newbie, not rock

i think if they put time into it, and work,(cool fight scenes) than it would be a super hit...

i thinnk they could get away with a remix version of the thudercat beat too( rap or rock would work)

here are the picks so far, i added tony ja,(would cant act yet) and westly snipes for the thrill of fight scenes

jagura-o (or the guy before lion-o)

lion o-- rock

tigrea--- tony ja

cheetara---Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, or Jessica Simpson.......

pathro----- westly snipes

the wildly kids

snarf( the austin power midget) lol

whatbout the the second part( would this be a second movie?)

the old blind fighter...jet li( the ol kung fu fighters always make good blind men lol)or ( tailor form kungfu hustle)

the other girl..(i dont know)

and white tiger...( i dont know either)

You hack on the Rock not being able to act, and then you submit Jessica Simpson as Cheetarah??

Am I the only one who's seeing the irony in this?

Synch, buddy, pal... I don't want this to come across the wrong way or anything, but trying to decipher your posts is... difficult, to say the least. Same as in the RPG thread. It was hard to figure out what you were doing because it takes so long to mentally "fix" your errors that the message is lost. Even on your profile page, Connecticut is mispelled; and if you can't even spell the state you are from... you see my point? No offense intended, just wanting you to be aware that you're not the easiest poster to understand, is all.

Now back to it... Wesley Snipes??? As who? Panthra? I could see that.

Like I said earlier The Rock as Liono or Michael Jai White. Morgan Freeman as Jaga. Wesley Snipes as Panthro or Michael Jai White. Tony Jaa as Wily Cat. Zhang Ziyi as Wily Kit. Michael Ealy as Tygra. Nona Gaye as Cheetara or Kitoy Johnson.

Me as Director and as Bengali. Jeffrey Wright as Lynxo. Meggan Good as Pumyra.

The best cast that will probably never happen.

Maggie Gylenhaal as Cheetara, subversively hot. It'd be too weird having an ostensibly 'hot' actress such Jessica Alba, Gylenhaal has a much better range then Alba who pretty much does a variation of "cute and stupid" whereas Gylenhaal can do seemingly contraditory evocation from sexy to threatening to vulnerable. Plus having Gylenhaal suggests hottness without the transparent attempt at portraying "this is the character your supposed to fancy, because films don't work if you don't fancy at least one person" attitude you'd get with Alba.

Liam Neeson as Tygra.

Andy Serkis inspired update of Snarf.

i just found this it should help revive this long dormant thread and bring a lively discussion of a possibility of making a good movie using the thundercats.

anyone thing they can make this movie without making it look camp or cartoonish.
